This is a favorable aspect because the stresses are not in the luting agent areas and avoids being an additional factor for cement washout.
The survey also included some important questions related to Prosthodontic treatment such as the frequency of temporary crown placement, choice regarding the need of elective RCT for FDP and the identification of most irritant luting agent leading to post-operative sensitivity.

It has been observed that unlike anterior teeth vitality of most posterior teeth prepared for fixed prosthesis can be preserved without the need for any elective endodontic treatment, provided proper pre- cautions are taken during and after tooth preparation procedure.1,10 Postoperative sensitivity is usually due to pulp hyperemia.11,12 The selection of the luting agent for fixed prosthesis with vital abutments is considered critical as it has an important role to play in controlling post cementation sensitivity and success of the final prosthesis.
However, other studies reported that cast crown fit was not influenced by the margin design.16,17 Also, it was shown that tooth preparations with a 1.2-mm shoulder margins produced the strongest Dicor crowns, while 0.8-mm deep chamfer margins produced the weakest restorations when cemented to metal dies.18,19 However, other studies reported that Dicor crowns luted with a resin luting agent was unaffected by the type of margin design prepared.20,21
The final quality of the restoration can be influenced by factors such as light-curing method and exposure time, type of indirect restorative material and also by the luting agent.[3-5] Inlays, onlays, laminate veneers and all-ceramic crowns are commonly luted with dual-cured resin cements because light transmission through the indirect restorative is reduced, so the chemical reaction should theoretically guarantee a satisfactory degree of conversion.
